The Gall Nut Ink Set contains all ingredients for the making of 0.5 litres of black gall nut ink. Gall nut ink has document quality, which means that it is absolute fade proof even when exposed to direct sunlight. The ink appears in a light grey first and will gradually darken until it is black. This process may take few minutes up to weeks, depending on temperature, moisture and lightness.
